Past Places of Faith
Have you been inside other sacred spaces in town?
…Would you like to hear a religious leader from another faith tradition speak about their beliefs or practices? If either of these interest you, this is a series designed just for people like you. Come and visit with us. Ask questions. Meet people from other traditions and learn how other people practice.
Religious pluralism is not just an idea. It’s a reality. We mingle with people all the time from a variety of faith backgrounds, but what do we know about “those people?” Most religions value respect and hospitality, but to make these our own, we need ways to see, learn, experience and ask questions of those who practice faith differently. What if citizenship required that we get to know our neighbors AND our neighbor’s faith?
